"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has." - Margaret Mead
We are taught at a young age that some are destined to lead. That they have a natural propensity to trail blaze forward, to inspire others to follow, to take the less traveled path. But what if we were instead taught that each of us is destined to become a leader? We just simply have to change the definition of leadership.
Leadership does not have to be about professions; years of experience; titles; or age. Rather, it can be a mindset. A belief system. A choice.
We can all choose to lead. We can decide to be our biggest advocates, while paving the way for others. We can recognize that leadership moves in all directions: up, down and sideways. And we can embrace the responsibility that we all carry to unearth in ourselves and in others leadership qualities that typically lay dormant.
The Women in Leadership Nexus was established to create space for female powerhouses like you to come together and flip the leadership paradigm. This Rhode Island-based organization connects like-minded women through a series of events and community building initiatives.
We are guided by the following core values:
Sharing: We share space, our beliefs and convictions, and talents in a safe, accepting environment.
Authenticity: We have the courage and self-conviction to be our most honest, vulnerable selves.
Connection: We form meaningful, trusting relationships, understanding there is nothing more powerful than real connections.
Kindness: We put kindness above all else, celebrating each other’s differences and promoting an atmosphere of inclusivity.
Change: We are fierce—we will always fight to see positive change.
